VIRGINIA BEACH, VA, UNITED STATES, August 10, 2023/ — Blue Box Auction Gallery, among America’s fastest growing auction galleries, has announced their End of Summer Auction Series presenting two exciting events. On August 19, 2023, a historically significant collection kicks off the series. One highlight of this event will be George Washington’s hair, an exceptional artifact with immense historical value.

In addition to the presidential relic, attendees and bidders can anticipate other extraordinary items from American history such as scrimshaw powder horns from the Revolutionary War, a Civil War Army Colt revolver, and a recovered Spanish swivel cannon, along with rare prehistoric relics, Mississippian culture artifacts, Africana, Asian artifacts, and antique decoys.
